Wet and Windy Dove Lake

We had a fantastically wet and windy time in Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain National Park. It did not stop raining for our entire stay. Our reward for putting up with the rain were fun rivulets cascading down the mountain sides and powerful waterfalls.

Being in Cradle Mountain gave the feeling of being on the edge of a true wilderness.

The weather limited our plans to walk deeper into the park but we did all we could in the time.
